Well Done!

Arrived here after a frustrating experience somewhere else. We sat at the bar to get a feel for the place. They offered pretty good bar food and excellent beer options. Just watch out for the high gravity ones. Hahaha. They were delicious though. The atmosphere was fun but the acoustics were a... read more

Tipping Point is a great atmosphere and good beer. It is our second favorite brewery in Waynesville next to Boo Jum. Service is excellent. TVs to watch. a good time! Worth stopping in for a pint!

We just had dinner here and it was as good as we remember. The fish and chips are outstanding. The burger was fresh and well prepared. Good selection of craft beers and also domestic for those who do not like craft beers. Jade gave us outstanding service. Will be back when we are in town again.

The beers on tap were excellent, and the bartender was friendly. The service was not as active in checking on us as some of the other taverns and tap rooms, but I believe that was their way of doing things - more a local gathering spot. Everything was good, but since this place didn't offer us as out of towners... More

I've only eaten at the Tipping Point Tavern once and can remember the lively atmosphere. They offer a varied menu and healthy servings.

All sorts of food to choose from, but we love the burgers! The tater tots are hot and crisp, the beer cold!

Great pub food and fun atmosphere. They have several of their own beers on draft. Lots of seating at the bar, but limited number of tables or booths.

the Tipping Point has a nice, but limited, menu. The portions are huge. The pulled pork Burrito is excellent and large enough to split. Very good drinks, including their own microbrews. Excellent service and a live,y crowd. A great place for a drink, a quick dinner, a date or solo at the bar. Highly recommended.
